Watch A $2.3 Million Aston Martin Vulcan Pulverize Its Rear Tires For Fun

Burnout

It's nice to know that a burnout isn't too low of an act for the Vulcan.

The problem with rare ultra-expensive hypercars is that they find themselves in the same predicament as the Mercedes G-Class. They’re so pretty, expensive, and uncommon that no owner wants to subject them to even half of the harsh tasks that they’re able to accomplish. Not that any racing driver would hold back on an open track with the Aston Martin Vulcan, but then again you’d be hard-pressed to find one doing donuts in a parking lot or even entering a Formula Drift competition.

It’s the same reason why automakers built plenty of “expendable” cars that can be used to pull off some vehicular hooliganry. Think the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack or Ford Mustang. Ford even built Line Lock into the Mustang to make the process easier, but that’s not a standard feature on the $2.3 million Aston Martin Vulcan.

Does that mean it can’t use its 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine and the 820 horsepower it sends to the rear wheels pull off a burnout? We should have heard a resounding “hell no” to that. Pro driver Peter Dumbreck shows us how it’s done, and it’s a good thing this guy is actually a professional because the discerning individual can spot the tail wagging to the side and threatening annihilation to anyone who doesn’t remain in control. After molten rubber tracks are lain on the pavement, Dumbreck proceeds to hit the hill as hard and fast as possible for our viewing pleasure.
